The book provides an overview of the latest developments and advances related to earthquake-resistant structures. It comprises of research works contributed by various experts and researchers in the field of earthquake engineering. The book discusses seismic-resistance design of masonry and reinforcement of concrete structures with safety measurements of strengthening and rehabilitation of existing structures against earthquake loads. It also covers topics dedicated to assessment and rehabilitation of jacket platforms, electromagnetic sensing mechanisms for health assessment of structures, post-earthquake examining of steel buildings in fire environment and response of underground pipes to blast loads. This book will be of help to graduate students, researchers and practicing structural engineers.
